HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1570
MR. CHIOZZA-MONEY (Paddington, N.)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the importance of the subject matter, he can see his way to issue as a monthly Parliamentary White Paper an amplification of the Unemployment Returns issued in the Board of Trade monthly gazette, with details given separately for such of the trade unions which report to the labour department.

(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) It would not be possible for me to publish particulars as to the percentage unemployed in each of the 257 trade unions which make monthly Returns of employment to the Board of Trade, as they are obtained upon the understanding that individual Returns will not be disclosed.
